At CES 2018, Vivo shows the world the first ready-to-produce smartphone featuring in-display fingerprint scanning technology, demonstrating its continued commitment to bring an extraordinary user experience. The sensor will illuminate the finger, which will be used to scan the prints.

It will be interesting to see how the new biometric scanning technology will affect the smartphone usage and the industry trends. It is also said to be scratch proof and waterproof since it is covered with a glass. Those of you who were hoping to place a finger on the display even when the display is turned off in order to activate the in-display fingerprint scanner, well, it seems like that is not an option, at least not yet.

It's a similar story with Samsung's latest flagship smartphones, although it has shifted the fingerprint sensor to the rear of its devices rather than dispense with it completely. Apple however, completely removed the fingerprint scanner known as TouchID on iOS devices and is now relying on face recognition with the new FaceID feature. But now, Vivo is there at CES with the groundbreaking technology.

Alex Feng, Senior VP at vivo, said in a press release the solution is solving the industrys challenge of providing a more convenient authentication experience. The only difference I experienced was that the Vivo handset was slower - both to learn the contours of my fingerprint and to unlock once I put my thumb on the on-screen fingerprint prompt - but not so much as to be problematic. The smartphone is said to launch in the first half of this year.

"With our efforts in extensive consumer research and long-term R&D investment, Vivo is well positioned to pioneer the development of fingerprint scanning technology".

It's early days for in-display fingerprint sensors, but we remain cautiously optimistic about their potential to replace conventional fingerprint scanners.

Vivo says that the futuristic Vivo in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone offers consumers an unprecedented mobile experience, defining a new era of mobile interaction.
